Digital Stereotaxic Instrument W/45 Degree Earbars (ASLMDSI501)


Product Overview:
Stereotaxic instruments with digital, as opposed to vernier, scales offer greater speed of operation with reduced opportunity for error. This compact instrument, with the same footprint and drive mechanisms as our standard stereotaxic instrument, features linear position-sensing digital scales and a convenient remote display center (Patent Pending). Operation is easy and precise. Simply move the probe to Bregma and touch the zeroing button. Once all displays read zero, move the probe until each of the three axes displays the desired target coordinates.


• No reading, aligning and estimating vernier scales
• No calculation errors after locating Bregma
• All readings in direct line of view – no body twisting
• Higher precision (0.01 mm) and reproducibility than conventional vernier (0.1) scales.

Compatible with standard species adaptors and probe holders from other stereotaxic instrument manufacturers.


The 45 degree tip earbars included with this instrument do not penetrate the tympanic membrane, and although slightly more difficult to install than 18 degree tip earbars, are to be preferred if the animal will be subsequently tested for behavior or physiological function.


This instrument may be returned at any time be upgraded to a more advanced 5 axis angling instrument for the difference in list price between the two instruments.


Your work and your time are important. Why work with anything less?


Comments from customers:

Charles River Laboratory's Dr. Steve Luo is in charge of a group doing stereotaxic surgeries for researchers. After a day of use of his 4 new Digital Stereotaxic instruments, he made the following comments, and more:


"A great invention, this saves enormously on surgery time and improves accuracy."


"The technicians all want to be using these Digital Stereotaxic units, for future purchases, we definitely will go digital".


"Fantastic results, faster and more accurate", why wasn't this done earlier?"


"This improves our group's efficiency, and lets us give better results to our customers"


Dr. Miles Cunningham, McLane Hospital of Harvard University:

“I ordered a digital stereotaxic instrument because it seemed like a logical advance. I didn’t imagine how much of an improvement it would be in speed and convenience until I had actually used it myself in a surgery. "The time required to perform a surgery has reduced by about 20%, and the instrument's accuracy is unparalleled."
